We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, October 20, 2022.
On our day trip to Atchison we'll visit two of the most-visited attractions in that town, as well as a restaurant that's a favorite of the locals. Designated a National Historic Site in 1971, The Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum is the most tangible remaining link with the pioneering aviatrix, who disappeared without a trace on her 1937 attempt to circumnavigate the globe. The home has been returned to its turn-of-the-century condition, and features an abundance of personal and family memorabilia. Atchison is known as a hotbed of paranormal activity. The McInteer Villa is still one of the most unusual and picturesque houses built in Atchison.
Haunted occurrences at the Villa. Fact? Hoax? Tour the house, and then judge for yourself. After the tours and lunch, we will stop by Riverwood Winery for a wine tasting before heading home. This trip includes round-trip transportation by charter bus; tour of The Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum; tour of The Haunted 1889 McInteer Villa; private banquet at Paolucci's Restaurant; wine tasting at Riverwood Winery on the way home and staff escort. Driver gratuity ($2-3 suggested) is additional.
Cost is $105 per person if paid before 9/29. $120 per person if you pay September 30 or later. No refunds after September 29th.
